Greek archaeologists have made a unique discovery. During the excavations they discovered the skeleton of a woman who, according to researchers, nearly 1800 years ago, underwent surgery on the brain.
According to experts, a woman was buried no more than 25 years. On her skull was found a large hole above the eyes, which is likely to have been made as a result of unsuccessful surgery. Most likely, scientists say, she died during surgery.
